    Note about Sliding Scale Ticket Pricing:

    A sliding fee scale is a tool for building economic justice, and it requires your active participation. If a sliding scale is implemented effectively, everyone pays a similar percentage of their income for the same products or services. A wide range of payment options across the scale promotes broader accessibility, while insuring fair compensation to the producer. Paying according to one’s available resources creates a more equitable system for pricing of products and services.

    Sliding scales are often based on individual income levels, with people of higher incomes paying more. However, many factors complicate and affect our financial status. Some groups of people have costs that the larger population does not. Others have access to resources that are not always reflected in their lifestyle choices and income levels. Please consider both your class background and earning power when choosing your payment level.

      : This language about sliding scale pricing is adapted from Little Red Bird Botanicals:

      Born Kia Williams Washington, "Chef Kay" grew up in Uptown DC between grandparents homes where her family grew a variety of veggies and herbs. Her maternal grandmother taught her all about healing herbs. 
      When she was 9 years old her grandmother was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The  chemotherapy treatment would make her weak, so in an effort to find another option she flew to Texas to see a holistic doctor. When she returned, she threw away her microwave and took health to a completely different level. Kay's grandmother developed a passion for healing through food or using food as medicine. By the time Kay turned 11 her grandmother was deemed cancer free.  
      Kay went on to study Science in the hopes of becoming a nurse and wanted to eventually open a wellness center. After graduating from Prince George's Community College she transferred to the public health and policy program at University of Maryland wanting to make a change in the health system. She is a firm believer that it's her duty to educate and uplift people.  In 2018 she started a catering company with aims to open her own restaurant, which is now slated to open in the coming months.
